People tend to become so preoccupied with their everyday responsibilities and routines that they continuously look forward to the weekend or the changing of the seasons. It’s all too easy to forget to pause and appreciate the present moment in the midst of this frenetic pace. How many of us have expressed the desire for warmer weather even while walking our dogs in recently fallen snow?
You know someone who excels at being present? Dogs. A recent video posted to PetHelpful and uploaded on our TikTok channel makes this abundantly clear. Just wait until you see how this adorable dog enjoys the little things in life.

The calm demeanor of this dog is very contagious. That puppy is smart, according to @Julia Edmondson, who finds it adorable. Adds @Avani, “Very adorable!”
Cherish the little things in life because, as the author Robert Brault once observed, “one day you’ll look back and realize they were the major things.”
The typical lifespan of a dog is between 10 and 13 years, or 120 and 156 months, or 3650 and 4745 days. These are the days of joyful fetch matches, extended couch naps, tender belly scratching, aimless wandering walks, and afternoon runs through the just-fallen snow.
We should all take a minute to enjoy our surroundings, our position in the world, and the company we maintain, especially when it’s with our cherished dogs, like this wonderful puppy did. The 4745 days will pass by much too quickly.
